New Piksters interdental brush gap Sizing Probe available now

Award winning Piksters interdental brushes are now far easier to recommend and dispense thanks to the launch of a new Brush Gap Sizing Probe for professional use available in either plastic or stainless steel.


One probe covers all 9 interdental brush sizes sizes and offers:

  • Simple and easy size estimation using marks on the probe with corresponding sizes on the handle;
  • Generous 4mm band enables easy size visualisation; and
  • Laser marked to avoid the paint scratching off.

How to use the Piksters® Sizing Probe

Step 1. Slide the probe into the interproximal space till it stops.

Step 2. Withdraw the probe 4mm and observe the black or white band that was previously hidden in the gap between the teeth.

Step 3. Read the corresponding Pikster number size on the handle.

Step 4. Using your Piksters Professional Pack, select the estimated best brush size, go back to the mouth with this brush and confirm that the fit is not too tight or too loose. Use your clinical judgement to go one size up or down as needed. Some clinicians prefer a tighter, more aggressive scrubbing action and some prefer a looser fit for easier insertion.

For example, in Picture 3, the second black band from the tip is shown in between the teeth for easy visualisation, but in real life, it is hidden between the teeth below the contact point. Pull the probe back out 4mm and you can see which band was hidden in the contact area).
